    Agree with most of these. Jicky I like.

    Black Aoud's nuclear sillage is a big turnoff for me.

    Thankfully, no fragrance I own and only fragrances I have tested on paper - thus, not much washing off needed, simply getting rid of the testing strips was enough.

    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Hanae Mori HM EDP. Vile, cloying to me and made me not want to try the EDT, which was much better. Someone else mentioned Womanity, which was probably worse...

    Musc Ravageur. I've heard many different descriptions (cinnamon, vanilla, clove, etc etc). I just got a repugnant overpowering fecal smell and recoiled in disbelief. I've attempted it again since and still feel exactly the same. There are plenty I dislike but MR is the only one that left me truly horrified.

    Amouage Gold Man. Cheap air freshener that you'd find in a public toilet. No matter how much I try, I guess civet just isn't for me.

    Kenzo L'Eau Indigo PH. It was a really disappointing blind buy. Too bad, because I love all of the other Kenzo "L'Eaus" for men.

    I once had to try scrub off 1 million, but only because I had several fragrances on my arms for testing and it was just overpowering them all :\

    A*Men. I was feeling fairly rough that day (probably massive hangover, but we won't talk about that ) and A*Men just didn't make me feel any better, it was just slightly too much. Although I'm thinking of buying A*Men.

    aside from A*Men, sometimes I found Cartier Declaration, Hermes Jardin Medisterannee and Hermes Jardin Toit to be nauseating, especially when I'm a bit ill. I'll get wash as quickly as I could, there's odd sweetness that I found disturbing. could it be that I'm sensitive to ISO E-Super that always features Ellena creation?

    Etat Libre d'Orange - Secretions Magnifique stands out - but one or two others from ELdO too. A very polarising house.

    Byredo sank to a new low with M/Mink - i smelled like a vulture after feeding on outdated animal carcas...what a disaster although; their accord oud and encens chembur was very good!
